4. In a web browser go to http://localhost:8080/manager/html

5. Select and deploy the generated redcapui.war file.


   d. Redeploy:

      d.1 Open IE, go to http://localhost:8080/manager/html

      d.2 ALTERNATIVELY, browse to myprod\\C:\Program Files\BitNami Apache Tomcat Stack\apache-tomcat\webapps, delete war file and app directory redcapui, copy the war file in C:\runtime\redcapui\target to the webapps directory, then stop and restart the Apache Tomcat service.  This automatically unzips the war file into the correct directory structure.



   dbCreate = "update"


When creating a new server connection in the app, specify the path to the REDCap_Service directory , e.g. http://localhost:8080/manager/html (change the port to where tomcat is installed. Bitnami installations might not need a port specified)http://localhost:8080/manager/html, login, stop, undeploy, browse to war file in c:\runtime\redcapui\target, redeploy. (Note that parameters for the Tomcat Web App Manager - e.g. username/password - are contained in C:\Program Files\BitNami Apache Tomcat Stack\apache-tomcat\conf\tomcat-users.xml.) https:// redcap.tch.harvard.eduyour_redcap_instance/REDCap_Service/https://svn.recomdata.com/repo1/chb/redcap2i2b2/odm"http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgihttps://svn.recomdata.com/repo1/chb/redcap2i2b2/redcapui"http://dist.springframework.org.s3.amazonaws.com/release/GRAILS/grails-1.3.7.zip
